- William Basinski, "A Shadow in Time"
Now comes, A Shadow in Time, the composer’s latest effort, which consists of two 20-minute tracks. Against all odds, Basinski manages to recapture traces of those fading, distant sounds on an album that occupies a comparatively brighter space. “For David Robert Jones,” his eulogy to David Bowie, opens the album on a decidedly somber note. But by presenting it alongside the title track — with its hopeful, decidedly Eno-esque sheen — Basinski brings listeners out of grief and into the light.
